differentiate between the strength and direction of a correlation
Learning Objectives
    • After this lecture, you should be able to complete the following Learning Outcomes
  • 10.1
Differentiate between the strengthand direction of a correlation
correlation
10.1Correlation

Until now, we’ve examined the presence or absence of a relationship between two or more variables

What about the strength and direction of this relationship?

  • We refer to this as the correlation between variables

Strength of Correlation

  • This can be visualized using a scatter plot
    • Strength increases as the points more closely form an imaginary diagonal line across the center

Direction of Correlation

  • Correlations can be described as either positive or negative
    • Positive – both variables move in the same direction
    • Negative – the variables move in opposite directions

10.2Curvilinear Correlation

A relationship between X and Y that begins as positive and becomes negative, or begins as negative and becomes positive

discuss the characteristics of correlation coefficients
Learning Objectives
    • After this lecture, you should be able to complete the following Learning Outcomes
  • 10.3
Discuss the characteristics of correlation coefficients
the correlation coefficient
10.3The Correlation Coefficient

Numerically expresses both the direction and strength of a relationship between two variables

  • Ranges between -1.0 and + 1.0

Direction

  • Strength
  • The sign (either – or +) indicates the direction of the relationship
  • Values close to zero indicate little or no correlation
  • Values closer to -1 or +1, indicate stronger correlations

Learning Objectives
    • After this lecture, you should be able to complete the following Learning Outcomes
  • 10.4
Calculate and test the significance of Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r)
pearson s correlation coefficient r
10.4Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient (r)

Focuses on the product of the X and Y deviations from their respective means

  • Deviations Formula:
  • Computational Formula:
testing the significance of pearson s r
10.4Testing the Significance of Pearson’s r

The null hypothesis states that no correlation exists in the population (ρ = 0)

  • To test the significance of r, at ratio with degrees of freedom N – 2 must be calculated

A simplified method for testing the significance of r

  • Compare the calculated r to a critical value found in Table H in Appendix C

CHAPTER SUMMARY

  • Correlation allows researchers to determine the strength and direction of the relationship between two or more variables

10.1

  • In a curvilinear correlation, the relationship between two variables starts out positive and turns negative, or vice versa

10.2

  • The correlation coefficient numerically expresses the direction and strength of a linear relationship between two variables

10.3

  • Pearson’s correlation coefficient can be calculated for two interval-level variables

10.4

  • The partial correlation coefficient can be used to examine the relationship between two variables, after removing the common effect of a third variable
